While working on my truck this weekend, I pulled the transfer case shifter out, and the seat bushing is like mud...disintegrating. I checked Marlin's website (since I have their tranny shifter seat and I love it), and they have a replacement but it's for a forward shifting t-case. So I called Marlin, and they don't think the transfer case shifter seat will work in the T100 case. So I called Toyota, and thier parts diagram doesn't show the seat bushing as seperate. The guy told me it would come as part of the plate on top of the case (the one with 4 bolts you see when you remove the shift boots). That seems strange since you can get the 5-speed transmission seat seperately.

Anyone run into this? any suggestions? I looked in the FSM PDF I have and it doesn't show the shifter seat either. :confused:

Ahem...even in yer own thread you posted. :D

Looks like dj99 used the blue shifter seat fer the transfer case seat just fine. ;)

Fer $10 at MarlinCrawler.com it sure wouldn't hurt to give it a shot. :D
Yes, and it still works just fine. I found it was more difficult to install than the tranny only because of the snap ring. :disappoin

:spit:HAHA! :lol: Wow! I totally forgot to look back at that thread! Looks like I need one of these!:slap: Doh! I looked up transfer case with the search function...I must've missed the one from my own post! You guys are awesome...Thanks Bam and dj! I will order the blue one from Marlin. Maybe I'll let them know it works once it's in...I am sure I won't be the last person to need one for a T.

It Works!!

Well, the blue replacement seat from Marlin certainly works!:thumbsup: I finally got a chance to install it over the weekend. Pics follow with brief explanations:

The Marlin seat:


Removed all of this stuff:


You'll need these (well, sort of...it can be done without the snapring pliers but they make it WAY easier):


Boots and trim removed:


Remove the snap ring holding the TCase shifter in place:


Note: Put the lever into the 4Hi position before removing the lever. This makes reinstallation easier. Once the snapring is removed, lift out the lever. This is what greeted me...the bushing has completely disintegrated:eek::


I used my mini shop vac to pull a bunch out, and cleaned up the area bit with a rag:


I had to clean up the shifter and such. In this photo you can see the small rubber ring that was left at the bottom of bushing (the small black thing in the background). Also, note the offset notches on the shifter...you have to reinstall it the same way it came out:


So then I regreased the shifter:


And the seat and bushing and put the lever back in:


At this point i would like to direct your attention back to this photo:


When reinstalling the case lever, make sure you place it to the passenger side of the spring (to the right of the "straight" section of the spring...the "bendy" section is on the driver side of the Tcase opening). That way when you shift into 4Hi, it will stay there, and not be pushed to the passenger side, close to the neutral and 4Lo positions. You have to angle the bottom of the shifter to the passenger side, lower it into the case to the passenger side of the spring, and then push the spring over (towards the driver side) when seating the shifter. Wordy yes, acurate, yes!:D

I regreased the tranny shifter while i was at it as well. After that, I put the dust covers, the "under boot", and the metal trim on...


...and the "over boots" back on and screwed it all back together. You may not have the under boot and over boot...I think the PO did that for some reason. I'm glad though...cuts down on the noise even more! :D All done and working great!


So to reiterate...

The Marlin Crawler blue transfer case shifter seat WILL work on the T100's R150F. :D

Now, does anyone know if the center console from the SR5 T100s or 4Runners will work with the bench seat?;)

You mean the center console that sits in between the bucket seats on the T-100? I don't think you'll be able to fit that in yer T-100 cause you have the shifters in there...and you have bench seats. ;)

I think yer gonna have to build a custom console and git the bucket seats. :D

Actually, I realized my mistake when you replied. What I meant in my head was the trim piece that surrounds the shifters, not the console itself...kind of like these I found:




I want the shifter area to look a little nicer (the carpet is pretty banged up there...I am thinking I may be able to pull one from a Gen 1 or 2 4Runner, or a SR5 T100 (if the trim piece is seperate from the center console). Any thoughts? I may need to run to LKQ for a quick look-see to see if something there works!:D I have terrible fab skills (because I don't really do it!)

I finally found a pic of the exact floor shifter trim piece I am looking for.:D I haven't done any hardcore attempts to find any yet, but here's a few pics for reference (in case anyone else is wondering). These are from a 97 SR5 for-sale ad. Bam, I certainly hope this little piece doesn't cost $212! :D I may have to bring these pics to a yota dealer and see if they can even get a part number for me. We'll see. Either that or email the pics to some of the car-part dealers to ensure they have the piece I am looking for. Anyway...piccies below!

I'de suggest looking for people parting out their Ts on craigs. I was looking for a replacement for mine a while back. I ended up just keeping the old one.

I found the dealer wants two arms and legs for it..... And figuring out which part it is on carpart.com was difficult.

good luck :D

Yeah, I have my new superphone utilizing the craigslist notification app. If anyone posts "T100" on craigslist anywhere in my state, I get an update. I just wish Olympus hadn't named of of their cameras a T100! :D

I have a lot of time off coming up for the holidays, and I plan on doing most of my searching then! :thumbsup:

I forgot to update this thread, so for FYI:

I went to the Toyota dealer over the holidays. I brought in the VIN of the T100 in the above pics with the shifter trim. They quoted somewhere in the neighborhood of $120. Not bad! This will be on my list of things to get for the T100! Provided I don't find it in the salvage yard first. I tried to contact a few of the companies from car-part in my region and not a single one replied to me. Ah well...I guess NOS will have to do! :thumbsup:

I can't remember if I got a printout or not of the part numbers (holiday craziness and all). But If I did, I will be sending a PM soon. :D
